Why SIMPLE Wins: Escape the Complexity Trap and Get to Work That Matters

Imagine what you could do with the time you spend sitting in meetings and writing emails every day.

Complexity is killing companies' ability to innovate and adapt, and simplicity is fast becoming the competitive advantage of our time. Drawing on research and themes from her latest book, Why Simple Wins, Bodell inspires leaders and their teams to proactively move beyond the feelings of frustration and futility that come with so much unproductive work in today’s corporate world, to create a corporate culture where valuable, essential, meaningful work is the norm. By learning how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity, and make simplification a habit, individuals and companies can begin to recognize which activities are time-sucks and which create lasting value.

Using highly engaging stories and techniques, Bodell proves that by using simplicity as an operating principle, we can eliminate the organizational and individual busywork that consumes us every day, and instead spend time on the work that matters.

Lisa Bodell shares tools and takeaways on how organizations and individuals can eradicate complexity, and allow Simplicity to be their new operating system and North Star towards an innovative workplace culture.

 

Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution 

Winning innovators embrace change – do you? What holds you back from better innovating, every day?

In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. So, it’s time to Kill the Company! This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work.

The key lesson of this Keynote: if we want people to approach change differently, we have to change our approach. You will learn how simplification lets us achieve more and better innovate. This can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving, and more.
